ABSTRACT

This paper describes the process of creating a useful geographic information system (GIS) viewer on the web that shows the map of the old town of Šibenik, which is located in the heart of Dalmatia. Spatial and attribute data is the core of every geoinformation system so therefore a database with objects of interest (cultural and historical sights in the old town centre) was created. The main goal of the project was to develop a GIS viewer for tourist purposes, but also to provide basic information about the current situation of building for investors and conservators. The rules of cartographic generalization, visualization and digital cartography were taken into account. The paper will describe theoretical and practical aspects of creating a geoinformation system. The theoretical part explains basic terms such as web cartography, web maps, databases and geoinformation systems. The practical part shows the working process which goes from collecting the data and processing it into the database, to creating the map and publishing it on the Internet.

Keywords: web map, database, GIS of cultural and historical sights
